LIVE Couples Therapy Observations

Relational Life Therapy is Transforming the Face of Couples Therapy

Learn the skills to cultivate more authentic, deeper connections—for yourself and others.

Catapulting Couples to New Levels of Closeness, Trust, and Solidarity

We yearn for deeply meaningful relationships, but many of us lack the skills to realize our dream.We’ve simply never been taught how.

And in a world that’s more disconnected than ever, we desperately need to shift into a more relational, connection-cherishing culture—and, as relationship professionals, we’re uniquely positioned to lead the charge. 

Created by leading couples therapist Terry Real, RLT is renowned for sparking profound and lasting transformation in clients by helping them heal their relational trauma and forge fiercely intimate connections with others. RLT educates as much as it heals to equip people with the lifelong tools to live fully-connected, fearlessly authentic lives.

RLT breaks many of the rules of traditional therapy to go deep quickly and help clients make rapid and significant changes. RLT therapists and coaches are real, open, and honest. We set the bar high for our clients. We expect rapid, dramatic change, and to a remarkable degree, we get it.

How RLT Works

Healing Relationships Swiftly and Permanently

Using a range of powerful diagnostic and transformative tools, RLT helps people to first reconnect to themselves—their feelings, needs, and desires—to build a stronger, more intimate connection with their partner.

Step 1:

Waking Up

RLT therapists use loving confrontation to wake clients up to their negative behaviors in a direct but compassionate way. We show clients the difficult truths about how they are harming their relationships in a way that builds trust rather than resistance.

Step 2:

Healing & Transformation

Swiftly get to the root of negative behaviors, understand them, and overcome them. Unique to RLT, deep trauma and inner child work is done in the presence of the partner. This allows individuals to go deeper and couples to grow closer.

Step 3:

Relational Skills For Life

RLT equips people with the powerful tools they need to continue building authentic, healthy relationships long after their time in therapy is over—the key to creating change that lasts.
